Air Conditioning Installation Arizona

Air Conditioning Installation Mesa Arizona

Your air conditioner gets a pretty thorough workout during hot Arizona summers. You definitely don’t want to be without cold air in 115-degree heat! Because A/C units work so hard here, the average lifespan of your central air conditioning system is between eight to twelve years. That’s if it was properly installed and maintained in the first place.

When your system reaches the end of its life cycle, you have an option of replacing your HVAC system that  meets all your cooling and heating needs for at least ten years. We’re here to help you make the best decision possible.

Choosing Your Next Air Conditioner

Purchasing a new central air conditioning system is a large investment, and one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a homeowner. Fortunately, by the time you need to make that decision, technology will have advanced and the unit should pay for itself through savings from increased energy efficiency.

Choosing the right HVAC system for your home is critical to achieving those savings. To help you make the right choice, one of our Comfort Specialists will thoroughly examine the design of your home and advise you on what works best for your situation.

Reasons to Install a New AC

Air conditioners are not cheap purchases. Homeowners are usually on the fence about AC repair and AC replacement. If your air conditioner is an older model and its repair costs more than it should, it’s time for a new air conditioner installation.

Age of Equipment

Typically, an AC unit lasts 15 to 20 years, but no two A/C equipment are the same. Usage, location, maintenance, brand, among other variables, determine the lifespan of an AC unit.

In the Phoenix AZ,  metro area where most HVAC systems work 24 hours to manage the heat, an AC unit usually lasts anywhere between 8 to 12 years.

Efficiency

The efficiency of an AC unit is measured by SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is the ratio of the cooling output of an air conditioning system throughout the cooling season, divided by its energy consumption in watt-hours.

A higher SEER rating indicates efficient energy consumption and better humidity control, especially during hot summer months. In Phoenix AZ and surrounding cities, SEER rating must be 14 or higher to ensure indoor comfort.

When your air conditioner works on overdrive, it uses more electrical energy than it should. High energy consumption leads to high energy bills.

Frequent Repairs

Minor AC repair services are normal. All HVAC systems experience wear and tear and need proper maintenance services to prevent major problems. However, when your existing air conditioning unit requires frequent repairs, it may be time to consider a replacement.

Sometimes your house doesn’t get enough cool air due to clogged filters, obstructed vents, and leaky ductwork system. Sometimes your unit makes strange loud noises. A quick home service should let an HVAC technician fix these issues once and for all. If issues keep recurring, be prepared to get a new air conditioner.

In Phoenix, A/C installations are not cheap, but when you start spending on frequent A C repairs, a new A/C will definitely be a cost-efficient option.

Split versus Packaged Air Conditioning System

A professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technician will tell you what you need to know about air conditioning systems, but a little homeowner’s knowledge goes a long way.

Packaged AC System

A packaged air conditioning system houses the evaporator coil, compressor, and condenser in one metal cabinet, which is located either on the roof or in a cement slab outside the house. Most packaged units in the Phoenix Area are actually a heat pump the supplies both cooling & heat.

A packaged air conditioning system is ideal for houses with no basement or crawlspace. However, it is prone to rust and weather-induced problems because part of the unit is outdoor. When not installed properly, a packaged system can leak and damage your house’s roof and ceiling.

Packaged AC System
Split AC System
Split AC System

The split system has an outside cabinet for the condenser and compressor and an indoor cabinet for the evaporator coil and the air handler. A split AC system is normally combined with a gas furnace. In some areas gas utilities are not available to the home, then a split heat pump would be installed. Most split systems have 16 or above SEER rating, which means most split AC units are efficient.

Installation Costs

The cost to install a system differs from one place to another. However, the same variables drive installation costs in Mesa, AZ as in other places. The efficiency of a unit, its size and capacity, the contractor, and more are the factors that affect the cost of installing air conditioning equipment.

SEER Ratings

Air conditioners with high SEER ratings cost more upfront, but because these are highly efficient air conditioners, they’re more cost-efficient in the long run and they ensure cool air for your comfort.

SEER stands for- Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio- This is a important factor to consider when purchasing a new HVAC system. Currently the law permits only 14 SEER or higher equipment to be installed.

One of the ways we try to explain SEER ratings is we look at SEER like MPG on an automobile. The higher the SEER rating the more efficient the system will run.

.

Size

An air conditioner’s size is measured in tons. It measures the cooling effect of an ac unit. Basically, it tells customers how effectively the unit can remove heat from the house. Hire an HVAC technician to find the right AC size for your home so you won’t run into problems soon after installation.

As far as air conditioning systems are concerned, bigger does not always mean better. An oversized air conditioning unit will quickly cool your home but quick cooling will turn the unit off and on without stabilizing the temperature in your home.

When your unit is undersized, it will have to exert more pressure to cool off your home, especially in summer when the AC is on 24 7. Too much strain on the HVAC system will decrease the lifespan of your air conditioner.

Additional Services

The amount of modifications and extra services like ductwork and design will increase the installation price of an air conditioner. Old duct systems are usually not compatible with modern AC models, thus the need to design and install a new duct system.

Add-ons like a new thermostat or an extended warranty service from a home warranty company also mean more money added to the price. However, some upfront investment will eventually pay off once you start saving from reduced utility bills.

Perfect Timing

The best time to install an HVAC system is before the heating and cooling seasons, or during spring and fall. Installation service in summer is way more expensive, owing to the law of supply and demand. In Phoenix, the price of HVAC installation is a lot more in summer when the demand for such services is high.

When there is a high demand for HVAC services, the quality of service can also suffer. To be on the safe side and to save extra costs, plan accordingly.

AC installation cost varies from one contractor to another. Unfortunately, not all contractors put a premium on quality service and customer satisfaction. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website, almost half of all HVAC systems are not installed correctly, reducing their efficiency by up to 30 percent.

Tips to Find the Best Contractor

Your job as the homeowner is to look for a reputable company with professional technicians who can answer questions about the installation process, aftercare services, and products to choose from.

Your circle of friends and family members is a good source for referrals. Ask about the contractors and trusted technicians in your area. Online reviews about a company are also excellent sources of information about a contractor and their business ethics.

Write down your questions and pick up the phone to call different contractors. Ask about pre-installation services, cost estimates, preferred brands, years in business, warranty programs, emergency home services, qualification of technicians, and everything you want to know before committing to an installation.

With all of the great reviews, I decided to reach out to Air Care when one of our AC units went out in the middle of 117 degree temps. The man I spoke to was super sweet, and assured me that someone would come out right away. When the tech arrived, he took a peek at our units. He told us that we needed a new unit(which we knew and were ready to schedule). However, it would take a few days to get the unit installed. He offered to get us back up and running for $700. We thought that was a very pricey quote, to get us back up and running temporarily. Because we had the downstairs unit working, we decided to advise the tech that we would think about it, since $700 was super high. When my husband went to hand the tech the $60 for for service charge, the tech said " you have an AC guy here to help, but you aren't going to use him"? Then, he literally put his hands up, and said "keep your money", and walked away. We were shocked, confused, and disappointed by the unprofessional response. We eventually found another another AC company, who came out the next day. He was super professional an kind. He got us back up and running for $272. NOT $700 that we were grossly over quoted by Air Care. Our new AC tech and will be coming next week to install a new unit. To overcharge valley residents during a time when they are in need, with the dangerously high temps is just simply unacceptable. For this reason, Air Care gets a 1 star!!!!

I had an air-conditioning issue this morning and tried to call several places to come out to take a look at my unit. Most were unavailable until a few days from now. I called air care and they were able to come out within two hours. The service they performed was outstanding. I’m very satisfied with the quick turnaround and the work that they did.

Ken did such a wonderful job I was super stressed out calling tons of places already knowing my 30 yr unit needed to be replaced (I was screwed over by my current servicing company when they told me I didn’t need to replace it yet sticking me now in one of the hottest days with no ac) no one could offer me a quick solution. timeframes for replacement left me without ac! Not only did he get my old unit running to cool the house he is scheduling us faster than everyone else to install the new unit. Ken was the best so patient and understanding allowing us to be comfortable while we wait for install in a couple days!

My AC went out at 7:30 pm I looked up Air Care for repairs and they were out here in 30 min. Ken came out and knew just what to do to get it up and running fast. We need a new AC unit but he didnt pressure us one bit. He did a repair to my AC unit and it's working great. Very happy with Air Care. Fast HVAC repair and very professional

The technician was on-time and check both of my units ( I wanted a tune-up) and he gave a detailed explanation of what was needed. So he gave me all the options of the maintenance plan, and that is where the pressure started, he was trying to sell us the plan, until and I told him that I didn't want it right now, he got mad and left! I am giving 2 stars only because of the detailed explanation, but I don't think that is professional at all to just get mad because you don't buy their maintenance plan.
